Z’ Tejas. We’d almost gone there once before, but had made a hasty retreat when faced with a sign saying ‘Valet Parking’. Where I’m from, valet parking means you need a personal loan to afford the appetizers.
However, it turns out that that’s not the case for Z’ Tejas. I guess you could view it as expensive by Austin standards, in that you can easily spend $30 each if you go for an appetizer and dessert. Anyhow, the food was excellent—we had enchiladas that were packed with more mushrooms than Timothy Leary and drenched in mole. Dessert was the ancho chile fudge pie, declared the second best food treat in Austin in a magazine this month. I can believe it. Who knew that adding chile to chocolate fudge would work and bring out the chocolate flavor?
Incidentally, working in small coffee houses is very feasible here. Everywhere has free wi-fi. In Austin, even Hooters has free wi-fi, I keep meaning to take a photo of the big orange banner they’ve put up to tell everyone. © mathew 2017
